Palestinian Territories (AFP) – A Palestinian teenager was shot dead in clashes with the Israeli army on Wednesday near the city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said.

Musab Firas al-Tamimi, 17, was shot in the village of Deir Nizam north of Ramallah, it said.

His death took to 14 the number of Palestinians killed in unrest since US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel s capital last month.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said dozens of Palestinians took part in a riot in Deir Nizam and soldiers spotted one with a gun before firing in his direction.

An investigation has begun into the incident, the spokeswoman said.

Earlier, Israel forces charged a Palestinian teenager with 12 counts, including assault after her arrest. She had became popular after her video of allegedly slapping and kicking two Israeli soldiers in the West Bank went viral.
